North End new boys set for debuts

07 August 2009 09:49
Cardiff winger Parry and Ipswich midfielder Shumulikoski were signed within the space of 24 hours earlier this week and both are in line to feature against the Robins as North End look to build on last season's impressive campaign. Central defensive duo Sean St Ledger (thigh) and Youl Mawene (hamstring) have struggled for much of the pre-season with injury but are expected to feature. Liam Chilvers is on stand-by should either player be ruled out while new skipper Callum Davidson will make his first competitive appearance since March. Davidson was handed the armband following the departure of long-serving midfielder Paul McKenna to Nottingham Forest.
